AppCode 2021.2 Help

Code Style. Sass

Use this page to configure formatting options for Sass files. When you change these settings, the Preview pane shows how this will affect your code.

Tabs and Indents

Use tab character
  • If this checkbox is selected, tab characters are used:

    • On pressing the key

    • For indentation

    • For reformatting code

  • If the checkbox is cleared, AppCode uses spaces instead of tabs.

Smart tabs

An indentation consists of two parts. One part results from nesting code blocks, and the other part is determined by alignment.

  • If this checkbox is selected, the part that results from nesting contains both tabs and spaces (if necessary), while the part defined by alignment consists only of spaces.

  • If this checkbox is cleared, only tabs are used. This means that after reformatting a group of spaces that fits the specified tab size is automatically replaced with a tab, which may result in breaking fine alignment.

Tab sizeIn this field, specify the number of spaces that fits in a tab.
IndentIn this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted for each indent level.
Continuation indent

In this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted between the values of properties.

Keep indents on empty linesIf this checkbox is selected, AppCode retains indents on empty lines as if they contained some code. If the checkbox is cleared, AppCode deletes the tab characters and spaces on empty lines.

Blank Lines

Use this tab to define where and how many blank lines you want AppCode to retain and insert in your code after reformatting. The results are displayed in the Preview pane.

Keep Maximum Blank LinesIn this area, specify the number of extra blank lines to be kept after reformatting.
Minimum Blank Lines

In this area, configure whether to have or not to have extra empty lines around top-level blocks and nested selectors. In the field next to each option, specify the minimum number of extra blank lines to be left.
